“The beauty of Thomas Bradshaw’s “The Bereaved” lies both in how blithely he upends racial and social stereotypes and in the fun we have watching him do it.” Rob Hurwitt, SF Chronicle

“Bradshaw is like Molière writing for HBO. Or Skinemax, er, Cinemax. He mashes up the foreboding darkness and twisty surprises of a Pinter or an Albee with the shiny, happy pace of a 30-minute sitcom. The results are wildly amusing and, yes, even a little shocking.” Chad Jones, Theater Dogs

“Artistic director Marissa Wolf gives the play a sharp, brisk staging that brings out the hysterical humor and nonstop suckerpunches beautifully. Maya Linke’s fantastic set is a work of art in itself.” Sam Hurwitt, The Idiolect
